Formatted abstract
A new hedge — Lacoste + Stevenson extend and refurbish the Jubilee Grandstand at Blackwattle Bay Park.

The article describe the architectural design of the Jubilee Grandstand in Backwattle Bay Park near Glebe, Sydney, New South Wales by Lacoste+Stevenson Architects. The architects call the project camouflage as the addition is not visible from the oval side at all, and from the rear approach it effectively disguises itself by mirroring the grassy hillside at its back and the whole topped off with an astroturf roof. They replaced the falling-down skillion roof at the front.
